Battur Batkhishig received his B.Eng. (2015) in mechanical engineering from the Mongolian University of Science and Technology (MUST), Mongolia, and his M.Eng. (2018) in electrical engineering from Nagaoka University of Technology, Japan.
He joined Dr. Ali Emadi’s group at the McMaster Automotive Resource Centre (MARC) in January 2021, to pursue his Ph.D. at McMaster University. His research interests include electric and hybrid vehicles, automation, and motor control methods. Currently, he is focusing on permanent magnet synchronous motor modelling and control, and electric drives for electric vehicles.
As an undergraduate student, Battur discovered his passion for mobile robotics and automation. He was also involved in many projects, such as a pipeline inspection crawler robot, a wall-climbing robot, and the automation of wool combing machines in a Gobi cashmere cooperation. He joined the Sun Pegasus Research Center of MUST from 2012 to 2014. It was here that he acquired his research and practical knowledge. After graduation, Battur joined the Mongolian-Japanese joint Sky-Infrastructure Project (2015-present) as a research member. He conducted wind tunnel and field tests of the autopilot mode of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) for logistics.
Throughout his master’s studies, Battur experienced Japanese culture and work ethic. In the initial stages of his master’s studies, his research focused on designing a cheap and straightforward wind turbine that does not require advanced technology and a high price point, to produce. During this time, he was also involved with the Sumitomo Metal Mining Company. He developed a 3D-printed novel micro-bubble generator, for the froth flotation process of mining. Upon completion of his master’s degree (2018-2019), Battur worked for MUST as a training master.
Battur has been working in Uuduu Engineering LLC since 2013, in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, where he developed his PLC programming, HMI designing, problem-solving, electrical schematic creating, and other electrical engineering skills.
